The Auberge Residences at Element 52

398 S Davis St, Telluride, USA

Scout loves

  • These huge condo complexes are conveniently located right in town.
  • ‘Element 52’ is a cute nod to the town’s mining history (Tellurium has the atomic number 52).
  • Entrance to the property is via a funicular lift.
  • The condos are superbly decorated with luxury furnishings.
  • Valet parking is free (you’ll never need your car once it’s parked).
  • There is an attractive day spa right in the complex.
  • The property is tucked away from the main street.

Scout tips

  • The front desk is only manned from 7am to 11pm (concierge from 8am – 6pm).
  • Ski rentals are available on the property, right at the ski valet area.
  • A lot of condos don’t always have views – these feel more like urban condos.
  • The Cascade Residences offer prime slopeside location & the best mountain views


Built in 2011, these residences have been designed to reflect the mining history of the town. Expect to see plenty of metal, corrugated iron, wood and stone – all brought together by a cute funicular lift that makes you feel like you’re heading into a mineshaft. It’s via the funicular that guests are given access to the slopes.

The name ‘Element 52’ is also a nod to the town’s history, as the element Tellurium is number 52 on the periodic table. (Although, truth be told, Tellurium was never actually mined in this particular area. However the town has nonetheless become associated with this metal). 

Now that our history lesson is over, let’s talk about the condos! These have a distinctly contemporary urban feel to them, with polished concrete, wood and marble finishes. If you wanted to host a dinner party during your stay these condos would be perfect, as they come complete with spacious dining areas, comfortable sofas, gas fireplaces and Sonos in-room music systems. Plus the kitchens are filled with high-end appliances big enough to make a city-dweller jealous.

The luxury extends through to the big bedrooms and sublime bathrooms (the master bathrooms also feature steam showers). And thanks to the ski valets, you won’t need to struggle with your ski gear in the mornings and evenings. The hot chocolate you’ll receive at the end of the day is a particularly nice touch – providing a sweet treat for kids and adults alike. Make sure you take time to check out the on-site spa – all guests have access to the facilities, including the steam rooms.

The Cascade Residences offer premium slopeside access and are those located closest to the funicular. They also boast slightly better mountain view than the Auberge Residences.

Auberge Residences at Element 52 are the perfect Telluride lodging option for those seeking self-contained condos, with both a downtown and slopeside location (a rarity in Telluride!).
